Classmate recalls Clinton, politically astute at 20


PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania: Many of Hillary Clinton’s university classmates have traveled to Philadelphia to witness her historic Democratic presidential nomination, including Nancy Wanderer, who recounts how the candidate caught the political bug at Wellesley in the 1960s. Clinton was elected student body president at the prestigious all-women’s college near Boston in 1968. In the years since, she has regularly attended class reunions, providing her former classmates a privileged peek into the development of the woman who seeks to make history as the 45th president of the United States. Wanderer and Clinton spent four years at the school and graduated in 1969. Today, Wanderer is 68 and a professor emerita of law at the University of Maine. She is also a delegate to this week’s Democratic National Convention, where she took questions from Agence France-Presse.
